This Week in Entrepreneurship Policy

Mark Marich

Entrepreneurial pulse

Congress gets back into full swing this week with a collection of committee hearings on Capitol Hill. The House Small Business Committee has a couple of hearings of interest -- first reviewing the proposed SBA budget for 2015 and then exploring the negative impact occupational licensing has on entrepreneurship and jobs. Other topics covered include: a possible end to the Fed's quantitative easing program, the proposed 2015 budget request for science agencies, bankruptcy reform, cyber security, the international financial system, quantitative easing and improving access to power throughout Africa.
